"Good soup-a bit salty but I added more water and it helped. I would recommend it for something different for supper to try."

"I make this quite often, it's so easy and quick to make! I use hashbrowns with red/green pepper."

Reviewed Nov. 3, 2009

"Made some modifications--only 2 cans of soup and specified low salt/reduced fat cream of chicken soup and instead of bullion, used 4 cups reduced sodium broth."
